The Department of Public Works announced today that New England Road near Amblers Lane in West Mifflin Borough has reopened to traffic. The closure was required for replacement of Pine Run Bridge No. 5; installation of scour protection, storm drains, and guide rail; as well as approach roadway work.
The work, which was done by Pugliano Construction Co., Inc., of Pittsburgh, is part of the $1.6 million 2019 Capital Bridges contract.
As previously announced, another section of New England Road – near Smith’s Lane – is closed. That restriction, which is expected to end in August 2020, is required for the preservation of Pine Run Bridge No. 4. The work includes installation of a new bridge deck, scour protection, and guide rail; replacement of an inlet; and approach roadway work.
Traffic will be detoured using Clairton Road (Route 885), Lebanon Church Road, and Camp Hollow Road. Smith’s Lane traffic will have access to New England Road during the closure.
